They say that in zen you always have to be a beginner. As you progress in photography you will want to keep your beginners mind and always improve your technical abilities. This will keep your photography looking fresh and new, while adding a layer of excitement to your work.
As you grow in your abilities your excitement will continue to grow, with each step that you progress you will find that your enjoyment brought to new heights. Just remember that not everyone will see the picture like you do, what matters is that your happy. Every viewer has a different experience; if you follow your passion and creative drive and it makes you happy then you are on the right track.
I hope to continue to inspire people to create and grow, with the belief that if you keep working towards your goals that you will improve your life and bring others happiness in the process. Set some goals and work your butt off, then give yourself the praise for your hard work. What matters is that you feel good about your success regardless of what praise you receive from others. Always do your best regardless if anyone notices or not. Then your always doing the best for yourself, and your self esteem isn’t tied to anyone else’s opinions. That you will find is the most rewarding in the long run.
